As part of the efforts to enhance Greece’s spa tourism and thermalism, the Natural Thermal Resources Protection Committee recently certified two more thermal springs in Grevena and Fthiotida.

According to an announcement by the Greek Tourism Ministry, Tourism Minister Elena Kountoura recently signed the decision, which has been published in the Greek Government Gazette.

“The recognition of Greece’s thermal springs is part of the national tourism policy, aiming to develop thematic tourism and specifically health and wellness tourism, as well as to promote new thermal destinations,” the announcement read.

Greek Thermal SpringsThe Kivotos Spring in Grevena, western Macedonia, has been certified as sufficient for balneotherapy (treatment of disease by bathing) in cases of arthritis, sciatica, backache and conditions of the nervous system.

Furthermore, the Paleovrachas Spring, located in Makrakomi in Fthiotida, central Greece, has also been recognized as sufficient for balneotherapy in cases of disorders of the musculoskeletal and the nervous system, as well as dermatitis.
